The nominees for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards was announced today [20th November 2019].
No Ghanaian musician was nominated but there’s a probability that some Ghanaian musicians could be recognised as 2020 Grammy Award winners.
The Lion King: The Gift Album by Beyonce and The African Giant album by Burna Boy have been nominated for the 2020 Grammys.
This, however, means that if these albums win their respective categories, the Ghanaian musicians who contributed to the making of the albums will also be recognised as Grammy Award winners.
Shatta Wale and GuiltyBeatz contributed to the making of Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift album. Shatta Wale was featured on Already on the album and GuiltyBeatz produced three songs on the album; Already by Shatta Wale and Beyonce, Keys to The Kingdom by Tiwa Savage and Mr Eazi and Find Your Way Back (Circle of Life) by Beyonce. Raye also wrote Bigger, the first song on the Lion King: The Gift Album.
